I guess I misread the article, and Flash might not be released in it's entirety, but the core engine at least is being released.

and to Kancept, yes Flash and Java do exist for OS/2, but Flash support only goes up to version 7 and Java only up to 1.4.2, and it's more or less the Windows distro w/ an Odin wrapper. It's slow and very memory hungry. Would be nice to see a native port of Java 1.6

Flash only goes up to version 7 in any alt OS as well. Linux is only @ 7 IIRC. I think Win and OSX are the only ones at current.

As for Java, there are really 2 1.4.x implementations. One is an odin wrapped, the other is a port (from GoldenCode IIRC). One group is working on a native 1.6 release, but I haven't seen news on that in a while, only a bounty offered for it to be produced.

Not that I miss flash or newer java stuff in eCom anyhoo.
